"We do not need more material development, we need more spiritual development. We do not need more intellectual power, we need more moral power. We do not need more knowledge, we need more character. We do not need more government, we need more culture. We do not need more law, we need more religion.

We do not need more of the things that are seen, we need more of the things that are unseen. It is on that side of life that it is desirable to put the emphasis at this time. If that side is strengthened, the other side will take care of itself. It is that side which is the foundation of all else, if the foundation be firm, the superstructure will stand."

Calvin Coolidge, "The Price of Freedom" pg 310
